My son and I went to Little River Reservoir in Durham today. We don't have a boat or much time, so we just fish off the dock. They weren't really tearing up the bait at first, but after a while the cats started hitting. My son caught four small cats, and I caught one little one. It wasn't until we were about to leave that the big one hit. After about a 2 minute fight, I landed an 8 1/2 pound channel. :smile2: Granted, it doesn't compare to some of the others I've seen on here, but we had a ball. He wants to go to Kerr Lake now and go after the 6-footers. oooh: I'm not so sure about those. Heh.
